I bought D&G 'By' off Ebay and it truly was a watered down version.
Let me know - thanks!
Best suggestion: don't shop on ebay. Go to scentiments or any of the half-dozen other recommended web retailers who will guarantee authenticity, have a decent returns policy, and have prices that are just as good (or sometimes better) than ebay.
With Caron, though, unless you are talking about the fountain fragrances, the prices are generally pretty low (I got PuH for less than $15, Yatagan and 3eme man for $20-25, etc.)
If you are determined to shop ebay, I'd search the archives here for a number of discussions with hints and suggestions.
Here is a link to a current discussion on this forum that has some info on fakes and feedback:http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=194249
